I downgraded in size and went with a Corsair 540 Air. The FT02 was taking up too much space under my desk, and I wanted to move to AIO watercool for the CPU for overclocking Haswell's terrible thermal performance Snorkle.gif. Unfortunately the FT02 would only permit a 120mm setup.

I'm very happy with the new case, but, admittedly, I'm sacrificing the cooling potential on my GPU cards.

Time to go full water =), personally if i were to go water i would do the hole thing not just the CPU. Waterblocks for Aquacomputer and Heatkiller look so nice....

not entirely true. the FT02 can fit anywhere between a 120mm rad to a 540mm rad smile.gif tho some requires more modding then others tongue.gif with very mild modding. the FT02 does come with 2 plastic brackets to allow you to use 240/360mm rads w/o much issue (obviously cutting into the length of GPU you can use as it extends over the AP181's) with a fair bit of modding you can put a 540mm(3x180mm) rad in there which would give you unparalleled cooling performance.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

i can understand that you wouldn't want to cut into the FT02 since it's such a nice case, but you can definitely use something like a H100 with the included plastic brackets

I love my FT02, a GTX 690 will fit using the factory fan/filter setup

the only down side to FT02/RV02 is you have to be careful when you buy your GPU. alot of GPU coolers do not work well with the vertical mount.
